Benefactors

We are most grateful to our benefactors who support our apostolate. Our community is composed of good and sincere priests who are engaged in full-time, advanced studies here in Rome. Many of these priests are members of very poor dioceses. Since 1948 the Convitto has had as its mission to provide a house of prayer and study for priests coming from all parts of the world. We are very dependent on generous benefactors to make up the difference between the sacrifices the dioceses make to support these priests and the daily costs of room and board, and ordinary expenses of utilities and building maintenance.
